Guess who's becoming a dad.

So we've been sitting on this secret ever since Mittens, but enough time has passed so I guess we can announce it. Janet and I are becoming parents!



Obligatory ultrasound scan pic. We're twelve weeks along. Thrilled and terrified at the same time. :)

....Long sleepless nights... but you should be used to that by now right?

Congrats Dave & Janet!

May you have many adventures deciding who is going to change the nappy  :=

Congrats Dave - it's the most amazing experience you can possibly ever have!  Plays merry hell with having time to make games, but still...  :-D

I've got a...jeeze, almost a 14-month old (time flies). Fatherhood's the best thing that's ever happened to me. Best of luck and be extra kind to your wife during the next year and a half (pregnancy + recovery).
